For an entire day, whatever you want to say, you just can't get those words out properly.
Write a scene where this dilema is making a situation awkward.
Nancy found herself in a rather peculiar predicament. She had been crushing on Luke for what felt like an eternity, and today was the day she had finally mustered up the courage to express her feelings. However, fate had a different plan in mind.
As she walked up to Luke, her heart pounding in her chest, her mind suddenly turned into a jumbled mess of words. Every time she tried to speak, her tho...
Words don’t come to me in real life
I falter, I stumble
I think of what could have been said
The shampoo bottles will tell you
Words aren’t easy for me in real life
I can’t say a full sentence
Proper old English
Words evade me in real life
I stay quiet while you wait
Words are evil in real life
They scratch and tear
I can’t seem to filter out
All that bad...
here’s some news…
i am suffering a MAJOR book hangover. but it’s not from just one book…
- anna and the french kiss (etienne st. clair has my freaking heart in his hand)
- the summer of broken rules (this book was heartbreaking and flawless)
- empire of storms (rowan whitethorn might just be the sexiest thing EVER)
… so yeah.
you could say i’m suffering from multiple hiraeth’s…
look it up 😉...
It started in the morning.
I awoke with this sinking feeling,
Limbs sapped from strength,
Mind empty of energy,
But I got up.
Because I have to.
Because there’s no option not to.
By the time the bus came to school,
My asthma had decided to seize my lungs,
Leaving me breathing in whistle tones.
I don’t like the way my pumps
Make me feel
like my skin is crawling
Trying to separate it...
“HILDY GIMBERG,” I spluttered. A burst of nervous laughter erupted from the judgmental, bored seventh graders around me. I swallowed and blinked back tears.
“Excuse you?” Said the history teacher, clearly losing patience. She sighed, pushed up her glasses, and reprimanded, “This isn’t a joke. This is your fourth quarter presentation on the Cherokee tribe. The PowerPoint is obviously well done. D...
What’s the word
Lepeop no lepeop suddenly there is a room full of lepeop
between Mandy and me
Where at the what’s the word
the sick people place
yes I remember the headache not a headache
my arms, my legs heavy why so heavy
I remember the red flashing lights on the bambulance
I remember joking with the paramedics
I knew one of the paramedic from my kid’s Little League
it’s the flu, just a really ...
Every word carries behind it intent
Intent to reach out
Intent to be understood
Intent to connect
But I’m choking on the transparency
Transparency is being seen
Transparency is being understood
Transparency is being vulnerable
The desperation to be heard and yet safe
Loving freely is not safe
Telling plainly is not safe
Reciprocation is a chance not a right
So I choke on my words
So I remain quie...
Into class they file slowly
Toe to toe as she surveys
From her place above them all
She grins over the blank parade
At her right hand slick white sheets
Are covered up by filmy black
She paces back and forth
Listening to the pencils clack
The heads of all I cared about
Are drowning in a pulpy sea
Of ruler lines and equations
As she lays the laws of chemistry
“I need hel—...
“Danny will you be my Valentine? No.”
“Hey I was wondering, did you want to be my Valentine? No.”
“Are you doing anything on Valentine’s Day?”
“Who are you talking to?”
“Danny what the Hell! You made me jump out of my skin!”
“Sorry I didn’t mean to.”
“Are you sure? You don’t sound fine, what’s got your goat?”
“Nothing, everything is fine.”
“Okayyyy… right well I’ll see you la...
Your greatest obstacle is your mind, the very consciousness of oneself is deeper than a first glance. You are allowed whatever you are able to conceive. Although you must be aware that the journey to nirvana is as a rose. There will be thorns, You will be tested before you can attain its sweet essence. Remain aware of how your heart leads you, and regard your past as a lesson so that you may never...
